1. Link?
I thought there might be a link.

I dont think I was included in your poll.
The liberal that lives in my house is disappointed in Obama.

6. Interesting. We had a get together last week
and I was surprised that the republicans in the group were more pleased with him than the liberals.

9. You must have interesting Republican friends.
Every single Republican I know, and I know many, loathe Obama.

10. I have several republican friends and family members,
Quite a few of them voted for Obama. Not all republicans are stupid. There was a conversation about McCain, Palin lost him some of their votes, and Trump is a fucking joke.

11. I'd love for a day to come and we see what all these folks believe.
None of it seems to say much. Conservatives are radicals. Center means corporate. Progressive seems close to a universally applicable label, at this point. Moderate often is used to describe conservatives, even arch conservative types because on rare occasion they exhibit signs of sanity and/or respect for our fundamental legal underpinnings.

Tell me what people's endgame is, what means they will achieve it by, what they think of the status quo, how resolute they are about reaching they are about their goals, and what they will and won't compromise on and I'll believe in labels and what their use is supposed to imply.
I'll still feel free to side against my own pack if I don't agree.

I think the use of these numbers to try to herd people is hamfisted. People employing the tactic think they are using a deft hand utilizing a liberals healthy questioning and self examination to erode passion and compromise on principle while using group think as a means to discredit criticism as "fringe" but the constant drumming of the theme and magic bullet like employment for all circumstances is probably sewing more seeds of distrust and rebellion that holding lines.

16. This should be a reminder that Posters here on DU
are not representative of Liberals as a group. I think the DU membership may be, but the majority is just not as "loud" as some are.

19. Is posting a well-documented, testable (and tested) fact always an act of trolling?

23. This is regarding simple approval-rating polls, not a choice between candidates.

24. Then it's pretty worthless as a guide to "approval".
Without adding choices it's meaningless. Do I "approve" of pickled beets? Sure. Would I rather have chocolate cake? Sure.

How about a little context? What do they find approvable about Obama? His hair? His golf swing? His war in Afghanistan? His deals with the Republicans?

25. You are right; they might have been talking about his hair.
